SCOTT SIMON, Host:

Time now for your letters.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

SIMON: Forgive us, Mr. Palmer. We asked Daniel Pinkwater for his reaction.

DANIEL PINKWATER: I am a life member of the American Peashooter Association. And while it is true that pea arms must be handled responsibly, they also are a great American tradition and a great source of entertainment for our children. Peashooters do not harm people; peas harm people.

SIMON: We welcome your comments, your cautions, your suggestions, your corrections. Just come to our Web site npr.org. Click on Contact Us. And remember, please, tell us where you live and how to pronounce your name.
